According to the NY Post, the Flat Earthers are planning to sail to Antarctica to find the frozen barrier they believe marks the edge of our world. According to Flat Earth doctrine, the supposed “ice wall” is said to be a couple thousand feet thick, towers 164 feet high and surrounds the entire planet.

The expedition, which is planned for next year is being organized by the Flat Earth International Conference (FEIC).

While details of the trip remain very secretive, FEIC founder Robbie Davidson told Forbes, “If you take a globe and you squish it down, the Antarctic would go all the way around the Earth. It’s kind of like an ice shore, and it’s very, very large. It’s not like you just go there and you can just peek over it. We don’t believe anything can fall off the edge, because a big portion of the flat earth community believes that we’re in a dome, like a snow globe. So the sun, moon, and stars are all inside. It’s very high but all contained inside. So there’s no way to actually fall off of the earth.”

...The Flat Earth Society suggests that “the space agencies of the world” conspired to fake “space travel” to hide the Earth’s “biggest secret.” This likely began during the Cold War,” the Flat Earth Society says. “The USSR and USA were obsessed with beating each other into space to the point that each faked their accomplishments in an attempt to keep pace.”

But will they really? Usually when you ask them, they come up with some kind of excuse. They don't need to, as they have enough proof. It's not a high priority. NASA has a fleet of attack ships which destroys anyone near the ice wall, making it far too risky. I suspect this will go nowhere, though you never know.

In an edition of "Top Gear", the Trio set forth on a race in the Arctic: which of them could get to the Magnetic North Pole first: Richard Hammond via a sled & huskies, or Jeremy Clarkson & James May in an adapted Toyota Hilux.

As this demonstrated, Jezza & Captain Slow won: in said vehicle known as the 'Invincible', specifically as - in a previous edition - they'd proved that the Hilux is utterly unkillable.

May (and Clarkson & Hammond) I suggest that you take said vehicles with you on said 'quest', o Flat Headers? PROTIP: Unlike two of said Trio who used a GPS to direct them to their destination, you use a conventional compass.

Because like that proven by the Trio, when it comes to your contrarianism, in Soviet Antarctica Toyota kills you.

...or your right to think the way you do: as shot full of holes as Captain Slow's tin of Spam was by Jezza & his shotgun.

Which one is it, did they conspire or did they try to beat each other?

So what happens when they reach the coast of Antarctica? Will they realize it's a continent? Will they wonder why there's no edge of a dome? Will they wonder why there's no fleet of UN ships trying to keep them away from the "ice wall?"

Well, obviously they conspired to beat each other. They agreed to allow Russia to have the first man in space if the U.S. could claim the first man on the moon.

So when you get there and see no ice barrier, what are you going to do?

Oh, this oughta be good. I always like it when people debunk their own conspiracy theories!

Guys, Antarctica appearing to stretch all the way around the world is simply a side effect of Mercator projection, which is also why Greenland appears to be the same size as South America...

... Whatever. I suspect this will end with "And they were never heard from again..."

This is going to be just like that guy who claimed he would ride a rocket up to see the Flat Earth. He bailed out the proposed day of the launch, citing bullshit difficulties. So will these twerps.

Guess that means America lied about Russia putting a satellite in space; and Russia lied about America putting a man on the moon.

Also, if they sail to Antarctica, they will prove nothing. They'll see a continent. Declare that the ice wall does indeed surround the globe. Return. And talk smugly about how they proved the Earth was flat; and that the sheeple need to wake up.
